International Military - It is undeniable that China is one of the countries with a very large military power. China's military power in the international world is indeed recognized. Even on an Asian scale, China's military power is currently considered the most formidable.

China's military prowess is supported by the presence of an extraordinary defense industry. Last year, China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic glide vehicle. And claimed to be able to travel around the world before advancing to the target.

This was a test that shocked the western world. At the time, US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley described the test as "very close to a Sputnik moment" for US military planners. It was beyond and beyond its early hypersonic capabilities that confused the West.

Beijing-based researchers have now claimed they can establish “highly reliable” ground communications during test flights for hypersonic weapons, the South China Morning Post reports.

According to scientists from the Science and Technology in Space Physics Laboratory, the system allows ground control to maintain consistent communication with the hypersonic vehicle while flying at altitudes up to 20 times the speed of sound.

In a report on their findings published in the peer-reviewed journal China Missiles and Space Vehicles on Aug. 10, team leader Li Bin called it a "major breakthrough." The breakthrough means that Chinese scientists can prevent the communication blackout that occurs when artificial objects occur. It's like a ballistic missile and a reentering capsule reaching hypersonic speeds in the atmosphere.

Previous research by a different Chinese research team has claimed that hypersonic weapons can connect with and pinpoint targets using 6G technology, avoiding some of the blackout issues that arise at five times the speed of sound or faster, as previously reported by the EurAsian Times.

According to tests conducted by Bin's team, a high-frequency communication network consisting of stations on the ground, orbiting satellites. And ships can be used to overcome communication blackouts with hypersonic missiles. The network will allow streaming of real-time data collected by sensors on a hypersonic platform.

According to the researchers, the network's global reach means that the military can use it to gather intelligence or launch targeted attacks anywhere in the world. In addition, it will allow the commander to end the operation at any time by pressing the "kill button."

It is important to note that hypersonic missiles traveling at five times the speed of sound are nearly impossible to intercept due to their unpredictable trajectory compared to ballistic missiles. The US has already felt the heat from China and Russia's hypersonic capabilities and is working on a hypersonic missile defense system.

The top space official, Lt. Gen. Chance Saltzman of the Space Force, said last year that a fractional orbit launch system could stay in orbit for a longer period.
